Okay, so maybe he didn't say he knows the truth about 9/11 specifically, but that clickbait title got your attention, didn't it?

Trump was in South Carolina, and he was pitching the idea that he would reveal publicly guarded secrets about who really did 9/11 if he was elected President. In South Carolina, Trump said that we went after Iraq even though they didn't knock down the Trade Centers.

"It wasn't the Iraqis that knocked down the Trade Center, we went after Iraq, we decimated the country, Iran's taking over, okay."
Wait, that's not a secret. We've known this for ten years now. Al Qaeda was not affiliated with Saddam Hussein and the Iraqis. And the Iraq War destabilized the region and resulted in a long quagmire that ultimately only served to empower the various Jihadist groups, this is all news from 2006, not 2016. So why is Trump bringing it up now?
"Because they have papers in there that are very secret, you may find it's the Saudis, okay. But you will find out."
 Okay, a lot of the hijackers were Saudis, this is true. But the Saudi Royal Family would be taking a huge financial risk by directly attacking what was at the time one of their biggest oil trading partners. They've certainly backed a few smaller terrorist groups, but openly aligning themselves with the most notorious of these terrorist organizations would be financially disastrous for them. Having the rest of the civilized world turn against you isn't good for your country's economy.
